A facelift or rhytidectomy is a cosmetic surgical procedure that addresses problems areas of the lower part of the face, around the nose, the chin and the neck. It is designed to reverse the effects of aging on facial skin as it tightens loose skin and underlying tissues and removes excess fat.

People having deep and superficial facial wrinkles around eyes, temples, mouth, cheeks, jaw line and neck, droopy cheeks and jaw line, jowls, loose hanging skin and neck wrinkles or bands are best suited for this procedure.

 

  • A standard face-lift is generally performed under general anesthesia or under local anesthesia with sedation.
  • The procedure involves making incisions in front of and behind the ears and in or behind the hairline. The skin is separated from the underlying fat and muscle and the muscles are then tightened. The skin is re-draped after excess skin is trimmed away.
  • In a mid facelift incisions are made in the muscle tissue of the face, the fat and muscle tissue are adjusted to pull up the middle of the face.
  • In an Endoscopic facelift an endoscope and surgical instruments are introduced through small incisions to remove excess fatty tissue and reshape facial muscles.
  • In a Thread lift thin threads are inserted into the face through tiny incisions and these threads are attached to the skin tissue and pulled back and knotted to lift and smooth the face tissue.
  • In a Mini facelift or the weekend facelift, an endoscopic is used for specific areas of the face, such as the neck and the folds of the nose.
  • Depending on the complexity of the problem, a facelift surgery may take between an hour and four hours.
